They support Ahaan and Ishqi’s love story, seeing the very possibility of the great Ishqaan.

Our Take:

The show’s story is crisp in entertainment. Few scenes of the show remind of Star Plus hit Ishqbaaz. Ishqi’s character can’t be tagged totally new, since it related to the characters already seen on TV before. Even then, the actress playing Ishqi, Akshita tries hard to make the character charming. Akshita brings a wonderful appeal, living her character well. So is the male lead, Param, who is perfect as Ahaan. Their pairing looks fresh and very much entertaining. Their scenes are good. It is ought to make one laugh. Rest of the cast is okay in their roles.

Main focus is on the leads, who doesn’t struggle to pull off the scenes. Param and Akshita have a good chemistry. The story goes on a good pace. It has revealed about Ahaan’s mother as well. There are no secret elements in the story left. Still, the story is well connected and brings good drama. Visuals and costumes, along with the sets are appealing. The show should bring more scenes of Ahaan and Ishqi, adding humour in the emotional parallel tracks.


Sony TV has come up with an interesting story lately. Such romantic story was much missed on the channel after the hit Mere Dad Ki Dulhania. A good attempt in the rom-com genre.

Our Rating:

3 out of 5

Feel free to post your reviews in comments below. All off-topic comments will be deleted.

  1. The story progresses like,
    For the sake of Sister’s happiness Ahaan marries Ishqi forcefully. They both hate eachother later fall in love. At the very time it’s revealed that Malhotra’s were behind the accident of Ishqi’s parents.
    Why on earth Gul Khan’s every show runs with one story?

  2. Well paired leads? Ishki gives me a headache. She and Ahaan do not have chemistry
